lyrics

With many a threat to the long-eared hares,
a trial around every bush.
They'd collectively chosen to end it all,
to render their own lives, kaput.

Oh such a burden, this worrisome world,
our stories are all of escape.
Anxiety always will be in our minds,
expecting such perilous fate.

As they hurtled toward the watery marsh,
their minds had been set in soap stone.
Then as their leader had witnessed a frog move astray,
it stopped all four legs of its own.

See, it then realised, with frog's motion in time,
that their thoughts had so narrow a view.
That their lives were worth living in spite of the fear,
frog lives had more fear than theirs do.

Oh such a burden, this worrisome world,
our stories are all of escape.
Anxiety always will rest in our minds,
expecting such perilous fate,
Yet there's always another who has it much worse,
you just have to open your eyes,
And as they had chosen to wait out their time,
we will follow in suit, and be wise.

about

Juniperus Saskatchewan

In 2013, Jeffrey Popiel began a solo project titled 'Juniperus'. His inspired originals have more recently taken on a new life with the pursuit of ÆSOP's Fables. While these new 'fable songs' reside in the realm of folk, they present themselves in a diverse way, by using distinct voicing for each character, and swaying between genres, such as ambient folk, quirky pop, and folky blues. ... more
